From 1st to 14th Feb 2012, Karuizawa will hold “Valentine in Karuizawa” events to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day as part of Karuizawa Winter Festival 2012.  I would like to recommend not only couples but also many people to come to Karuizawa and spend a special time.  Karuizawa is especially known for its cool and bracing summer, but it is also very beautiful in winter.

Events of “Valentine in Karuizawa” include followings:

  • “Love trees”, to which you can bind your love message card, are prepared in Yagasaki Park (5 minutes from Karuizawa Station), Karuizawa Station (JR), and Shinano-Oiwake Station (Shinano Tetsudo Railway).
  • Illumination events are held from 17:00 to 21:00 on 1st, 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th Feb.
  • Fireworks display is held from 18:00 (the event starts at 17:00) at Yagasaki Park.  Small gifts and hot drinks are served.  A mini concert is held.
  • Love Message Contest is held from 18:20 on 11th Feb at Yagasaki Park.

I hope you will enjoy the winter of Karuizawa!
